The time of year that many Michigan residents loathe. Sure, we may gain an extra hour of sleep, but it will be dark outside between 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM.

Going to work when it is dark, and leaving work when it's dark is super depressing. Every year we ask the same question - why is daylight saving time still a thing?

Although countless proposed bills have been introduced in the state legislature, here we are again. According to the Detroit Free Press, Michigan is one of 48 states that still participate in daylight saving time.

The fact that we cannot end daylight saving time, makes even bigger challenges seem impossible. Seriously, we think we can stop global warming or end wars, but we can't end daylight saving time.

Your days are numbered Michigan residents, you have less than one month until we fall back. Daylight saving time 2023 ends on Sunday, November 5th. At 2:00 AM clocks will move back one hour to 1:00 AM.

Most likely all of your electronic devices will update automatically. Long gone are the days of blaming the time change for being late for something (damn).

After a few weeks, we will get used to the time change - that does not mean we have to like it. If you need something to look forward to, Michigan will spring forward on Sunday, March 10, 2024.

The countdown is on.
